    religion has nothing to do with this debate and legal marriage, 100% nothing

    its meaningless to legal marriage and it will never be a factor.

    Religious Marriage is a religious construct and determined by the tenants of the applicable religious organization. Individuals can have a Religious Marriage without a Civil Marriage.

    Civil Marriage is a construct of secular government by the government entity with jurisdiction in such matters. Individuals can have a Civil Marriage without a Religious Marriage.


    "Marriage" exists in both realms and the word is not "owned" by one or the other. That's why when in a discussion on such issues it usually helps to make sure and use the Civil Marriage (as I do), it keeps the non-relevant interjection of "religion" down to a minimum.

    well to a degree you are right,civil marriage though is a civil union,while regular marriage is a religious union,the only differeces should be whether its religious or not.

    the only reason so much drama occurs on that subject is because many try to consider civil union less than marriage.but had they recognized marriage as religious,then by the constitution no one in the govt could regulate it,since being religious it would be regulated by each religion,and there are numerous religions around the world and america,so technically not every religious sect wold ban gay marriage,so by a religious point,it would be up to each individual religion to decide,not the govt,and not exlusevely christians.
